Art in Reykjavik

Photo by Patrick Jones. Reykjavik, 18 Aug 2016.
The stained glass above is from the National Museum of Iceland, which I visited last Thursday. It was a nice museum, we spent most of our time in exhibition on the history of Iceland from settlement to the present day. This really helped inform our Golden Circle tour on Friday when we went to Thingvellir National Park. Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and where the world's first assembly was established in 930.

On our Thursday walk I found three more murals that I missed on my July stopover. I have also included one other mural found after we returned from our tour on Friday. For additional street art photos from Reykjavik, see my Wall Poetry post from 16 Jul 2016.
